I just got a ticket for the preview screening at 00:05am Thursday morning. I will be one of the first to see it and I can't wait, it's going to be brilliant.

[/gloat]

So, are you jealous? Or am I a sad nerd? Actually, don't answer that.

    feels the need to turn into a geek

    Man its going to be soo sweet!! I cant wait, the thing I will be most looking forward to is seeing the first Gen Star destroyers, I play all the star wars games on the PC.

    You just cant beat flying a X-wing with your squadron taking on an Imperial Star Destroyer, the buzz you get as you open your s-foils with the star wars music playing in the background, as your squad leader tells you to watch out for Tie fighters!!!!!!

    Or having........

    SLAP

    Ooo eh yeah the film should be really good, I cant wait to see wee anakin go to the bad side!!!

    P.S Lucasarts please bring out another star wars game with the original fighters in it not your namby pamby naboo fighters! Pretty please

    It look's really good this time, and face it, nothing could be worse than Episode 1. The battle scenes look amazing (as does Hayden Christensen <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">), and it'll be great to see Yoda in his prime, actually fighting, shame as the puppet evidently wont make as many appearances due to the number of action sequences, being replaced with a computer generated Yoda.

    ok, i'm sure this has been asked many-a-time, but lets re-hash it for the sake of the new film - all time favourite character?

    i would say yoda probably, or the ewoks! fave film is return of the jedi <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I've seen it now!

    *tempted to spoil it for everyone*

    All I'll say is that it was brilliant, Yoda is awsome! I was sceptical at first, as the film is quite child based (see C3PO's comedy encounters), but the more I think about it, the more I love it.

    Yoda is the toughest guy ever.

    Man, Yoda can kick some darkside ass!
    go green one, go! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    When i saw the first three star wars (well, they are not really the first three, but you get what i mean.) R2D2 was my favourite charcter, and i also liked C-3PO. But now i am older, and wiser and the force is within me, My favourite charcter is Mace Windu. Samuel L Jackson Rocks!

    My mum is going with my younger brother and his mates. I don't know who i feel more sorry for.......

    This is a really Girle question, but don't you think that Padmes dresses are beautiful? I love that yellow one she wears with the pink flowers on and the ribbons i her hair.
    *signs*
    The love scenes were a bit corny though. You could tell George hasn't done much chatting up himself.

    Bugger her dresses.....She was absolutely stunning... <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">


    I loved the film....the clone army was amazing, the star destroyers looks very <IMG SRC="cool.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> ..

    Although a couple of minutes of JarJar did leave me wanting to stab myself to death with a spoon.

    I've got a pirate copy of it <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">. VCD copy works on PC if not your DVD player. Got it on Friday afternoon 36ish hours after release. First of my mates to see it...

    Wanna guess what's gonna happen in part 3!?

    Obviously, Annakin will go to the dark side, but what are the events leading up to his slide...?
    Who is the other Jedi who is working on the dark side with Count Dooku and the Emperor/Chancellor?
    Will the Emperor and Yoda meet in part 3?
    What was Jimmy Smits part in Episode 2 that is vital to part 3?
    We can guess why Obi Wan survived Part 3 to carry out his duty in the New Hope, Episdoe 4, but why and how did Yoda survive?

    Read the books and your questions will be answered.

    I have some questions.
    Why is it that the rebels, with their inferior numbers, technology and ships manage to survive 5 minutes against the empire with its countless troops, superior stuff.

    Why is it that something as large as a deathstar would have a weakness as obvious as an unguarded exhaust port that leads ALL the way to the SHIELD generator???

    How in God's name did the Ewoks ever stand a chance against 6ft3 clone troopers wearing body armour and armed with lasers? (why didn't they nuke the forest so they wouldn't need to put the sat tower or whatever it was in such a vunerable spot? Why didn't they just incorporate whatever it was into the death star itself?

    And why is it, that a storm trooper's helmet no doubt contains tactical displays and aiming aids, but they still miss, even though they are trained soldiers?

    And finally Why is blaster armour so useless?

    Apart from the obivous point of dramatic license there is the serious issue of the analogy between America (big, techincally superior) and it's struggle against the Viet Cong (small band of rebels).

    Worth thinking about? Then again, perhaps not.

    I've seen Attack of the Clones and, although better than the previous one, it's still not a patch on the original three.
